Had a fabulous time

Possibly the number one thing about the James is the fabulous staff. They go out of their way to connect with you and make sure that your needs are met. I can't say enough good things about everyone I dealt with. I'm quite partial to modern/contemporary design and really liked the design features of the hotel. The room was spotless and quite comfortable.They provide eats in the lobby/lounge throughout the day. Coffee and pastry in the a.m. Fruit and water in the afternoon. Wine and cheese in the evening, and cookies late night! The location in Soho was perfect for me because there's a lot I like to do in Soho. And I found it easy to get other places in Manhattan. Cab's are usually fine, but there's a subway stop right nearby and when mid-town is gridlocked as it was one of the days I was there, the convenience of fast and hassle-free transport was very welcome. All in all, a great place to stay.

best stay in nyc ever!

the location is a little further out than expected but well worth the few extra blocks from soho and chinatown. the extra amenities like snacks available throughout the day was an added bonus. the staff is very friendly and professional. caught some rain during our visit, it was nice to return back to the hotel with a warm welcome each time.

Best Soho Hotel

The James Hotel is a great hotel to stay at. It is so conveniently located to the best restaurants and shopping in Soho. The amenities are the best, not to mention the mini bar and snacks top notch! The staff is so friendly and David's Burke Kitchen is delicious, pricey but worth it! This will be my new go to hotel when staying in Soho! Absolutely loved it!

AMAZING STAY AT THE JAMES!

The staff and the service at the James was fabulous! We stayed for 6 nights and were greeted by friendly and helpful employees at all times. The restaurant David Burke is wonderful and conveniently located and also available for room service. The beds in the room are among the most comfortable I have ever slept in! Great location, close to shopping and restaurants. The only thing I can say that bothered me was every evening or early morning the smell of baking or cooking food wafed into the room most likely from the vents in the room. It may have just been our room, but that was my only complaint. Every night they have a wine and cheese reception and fresh baked cookies which was very nice.

Awesome find in really hip part of NY

Loved this hotel!! Super convenient for SoHo, and inside the design is really cool and contemporary. Lobby is spectacular, warehouse loft feel, not at all corporatey, instead more like an ultrahip living room. Bedrooms are really unusual too in their design, in a v positive way. I had spectacular views East and South. One of my favorite hotels in NY and I have stayed at many.
